Fortinet 2016 Predictions for the Evolving Threat Landscape

The threat landscape is in a constant state of evolution and the arms race between cyber guardians and cyber criminals has been heating up dramatically over the course of the last year. Over 20 billion devices are expected to be connected in the next four years alone, forcing individuals and organizations to face an exponentially expanding attack surface, bound to a borderless cyberspace. The consequences of falling behind in this arms race can be catastrophic and has elevated the discussion of cybersecurity to the boardroom. This is a complex scenario, and complexity is the enemy of security.

These predictions are designed to reveal the new trends and strategies that FortiGuard researchers anticipate cyber criminals will employ in the year to come. Fortinet researched these predictions to arm our customers with the knowledge they need to maintain their advantage in the cybersecurity arms race and proactively change the way all businesses look at their security strategies going into the new year.
